Churn Valley Viaduct

ISS were instructed on this project to supply the access scaffold to the seven-span bridge carrying the motorway between Swindon and Gloucester.

The works comprised of ISS erecting a slung scaffold to the bridge underdeck for grit blast and painting works. This posed several problems to overcome, not least because the bridge is completely inaccessible, being in the river flood plain.

ISS had the solution though, with our own unique runway system, which allowed us to transfer our scaffold material safely from the compound to the bridge, some 250m away.

The runway was then left in place for the client to utilise for their own works.

“ISS have been the most professional scaffolding contractor I have utilised in the past few years”
